Glacier summed up

Posted on


HCTB had a brilliant day on the glacier - be it the music, food, scenery (awesome), cable cars, toboggan etc. the weather was definitely in our favour. In the process of making the long journey back to the hotel at the mo - all the longer due to major traffic hold ups around Montreux. We're now making good progress & the hotel are on alert to provide a later than planned meal for us.

Here is what this man wrote to us:

Bonsoir victoria,Chloé,

Notre public et moi même avons grandement apprécié.

A très bientôt.

As translated by BlogEd:
Good evening Victoria, Chloe
A big thank you for the high calibre concert given this evening.
Our public and I myself greatly appreciated it.
We hope to see you soon

    Just wondering if Dan has any skin left on his arms and legs after the toboggan run? He was pretty much stitched together by scars, scabs and bandages before he arrived on tour!

    Finally managed to catch up with the blog. Sorry that you're missing a cornet player. Tour looks awesome and I look forward to catching up with you all. Thank you very much for the iPad, its all working great but as we don't have wifi in hospital I can't Skype yet - I sent this from a borrowed laptop.

    Stunning views, amazing experience. Weather doesn't seem to have dampened spirits and no signs of depression setting in; glad the sun came out today! Loving the pics and following the tour.
